Solidarity Through Service

Solidarity Through Service

Our local call to action for International Human Solidarity Day

In 2005, the UN General Assembly, proclaimed 20 of December as International Human Solidarity to promote the culture of solidarity and the spirit of sharing. In partnership with International Focus, Activate Good is hosting a Volunteer Service event on December 20, 2022 to share, celebrate, and honor the diversity of our community and unite us through helping our community. 

Solidarity Through Service is a month-long impact campaign designed to bring people together across faiths and cultures through volunteer service in recognition of this day. The campaign takes place during the typical winter holiday season celebrated by multiple groups in the local community. Activate Good believes that acts of service are a vehicle for increasing empathy and understanding for people across differences. When we serve together, we are all helpers, united in solidarity by purpose – despite any differences in race, nationality, faith, or other factors. In 2022, this campaign will extend from November 20 through December 20, 2022 and will include an outreach campaign with key messages and highlighting diverse volunteer initiatives through partner organizations, and a featured volunteer event on December 20, 2022. 

Nov. 20 – Dec. 20, 2022

“…wander forth for the good of the many, for the welfare of the many, in compassion for the world, for the good, for the gain, for the welfare of gods and people”
